This is one of the few issues I've heard of with a modern BMW that will leave you stranded by the side of the road, and people often seem to wait days or weeks for pump replacements. The fact that they fix it for free doesn't detract from the hassles it will cause you.

Warranties are cash cows in any business - selling you an extended service warranty indicates that the car would actually be a lot cheaper. Especially since a maintenance warranty wouldn't cover repairs.
You can find horror stories on any car - truth is modern cars are made well enough that serious issues are really few and far between, especially with a car that's been cared for properly. I've bought lots of cars that were supposedly nightmares to own, and either I'm incredibly lucky or people tend to exaggerate things. My money's on the latter.
